What do I get out the forum, well, I think it might be quicker to answer what don't I get. :roll:
This forum has in a lot of ways changed my life, apart from communicating with people from all walks of life and parts of the world who all have a like minded passion for the wild, nature and everything about it.
I have learnt an incredible amount about our parks, birds and animals.
I have had an enormous amount of fun and lots of giggles and in fact all out FOMCROTFLMAO hysterics, especially with a couple of WTM's threads, the monkey story at Croc Bridge being one of them. :lol:
I have met some really wonderful people from the forum and struck up some lifelong friendships.
And even those who I have not met personally, there are those who I feel I know as if I have. :D
I have got most of my family involved on the forum, and most probably have slightly irritated some friends as my conversation can tend to be somewhat onesided. :roll: :wink:
I have definitely increased my computer skills. :D
Of course as in any situation there are bound to be times when you don't agree totally with a point of view but thats life. :wink:
Where ever you go, go with all your Heart.

Exactly, MM! :shock:

Mods, can't we merge this with the "Why did you join the Forums" thread!?

Do not think this should go under 'Why did you join the forums' RP .
Do not find the same 'atmosphere' there.
I think 'issues' on this thread should be cleared up first.

Hi RP, we already though about it as mods.
But this one is indeed different.
Why did you join asks the question why
And this thread is
What did you get
In our opinion pre- active and being active.

A personal remark
The question isnt what you dont like about the forum and some members do post this :?

Therefore i think we shall start a thread what you like about the forum in the next few days

Hello, Bert!
A THIRD thread!? :shock:

I don't know if casual visitors will grasp the subtlety of the differences amongst the 2/3 threads, and believe most would rather get their answers through reading a combination!

Although, I have very often been wrong before! :D

Bert, I see NO need for yet another thread, just to "separate" likes from dislikes — or perhaps you're wanting to remove dislikes altogether?? :twisted:

I think I answered that "what do you get" aspect well, because currently I get some pleasure and some aggravation/irritation. In the beginning, before the explosion of social networking threads and members endlessly discussing their personal lives, I read pretty much everything on the forum. Now I "avoid" about 50% of what's posted, because it IMO has little or nothing to do with what I thought this forum was about: conservation, wildlife, nature and discussing SANParks.

I personally think that members stating what they don't like about the forum is just as relevant as what we do like — or is that just no longer politically correct enough ?? :roll: :roll:

I do agree that this thread is completely different from the "why did you join" thread and should be kept separate. However, I don't see any need for a "what do you like" thread unless it is a "what do you like/dislike" thread — and in fact, this thread is more than sufficient for that.

Very politically correct Arks.
But what you dont like can be a advantage to the mods and members.
Could be that some threads dont get the exposure we think or that we must add another thread(s)
But anyway, it still to be decided

Damn right!

I think this should be on "Chit-chat", for example, instead of being hidden on a rarely viewed forum. :twisted:

The other one is even more hidden!

This thread should be kept separate from "Why did you join the forums", and see no reason for a third thread.
